Sikkimens. et Kumaonens. latiora, denigue Khasianis et mont. peninsular fere globo-
sis.   Semina 2-4.

We have no hesitation in uniting the Peninsular and Khasia with the Himalayan
species, notwithstanding the difference in the shape of the berries and leaflets 'be-
tween the extreme states of each. Dr. Wight informs us that he has cultivated the
Himalayan one side by side in his garden with that of the Nilghiri, and finds them to
be nndistinguishable. Specimens of. the Sikkim plant, cultivated for a good .many
years at Dorjiling, acquired longer racemes, larger flowers, and more slender pedicels
than the wild specimens in the adjacent woods. The bracts are very variable organs.
